In 2002 the Rock Hall inducted Stax co-founder Jim Stewart, but excluded his sister Estelle Axton, the other Stax co-founder. Today we discuss her life and impact at Stax, why the label couldn't have succeeded without her and why her exclusion is a mistake that needs to be corrected. We also give a brief history of the Ahmet Ertegun award, discuss the ugly allegations against him and once again implore the Rock Hall to change the category name.
